BURBANK, Calif., July 18, 2012 – DC Entertainment, a Warner Bros.
Last month, we told you that in anticipation of “THE DARK KNIGHT RISES” opening in theaters and IMAX ® on Friday, July 20, comic book shops across North America will be distributing a free comic book to celebrate the film’s highly-anticipated arrival. More than 500,000 copies of this free BATMAN comic book will be handed out tomorrow on a first-come, first-served basis.
When it comes to "highly anticipated titles" it really doesn't get any highly...ier than BATMAN: EARTH ONE, the original graphic novel by award-winning writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank.
But with the title now out in comic shops and available for digital download, feel free to stop anticipating and instead put a pillow under your face. Because you'll want a cushion for when your jaw drops to the floor!
Tomorrow will see the release of BATMAN: EARTH ONE, an original graphic novel re-imagining the World’s Greatest Detective as a flawed and fallible young man fumbling his way through feelings of isolation by pinning them on a quest for vengeance. This Batman is no protector of innocents; he’s an angry vigilante with little interest in heroics, and with a lot to learn about the city’s mean streets.
